Notes to the Author


[This document is a template of a Training Plan document for a project. The template includes
instructions to the author, boilerplate text, and fields that should be replaced with the values specific to
the project.
Blue italicized text enclosed in square brackets ([text]) provides instructions to the document
author, or describes the intent, assumptions and context for content included in this document.
Blue italicized text enclosed in angle brackets (<text>) indicates a field that should be replaced
with information specific to a particular project.
Text and tables in black are provided as boilerplate examples of wording and formats that may be
used or modified as appropriate to a specific project. These are offered only as suggestions to
assist in developing project documents; they are not mandatory formats.

When using this template, the following steps are recommended:


1. Replace all text enclosed in angle brackets (e.g., <Project Name>) with the correct field
document values. These angle brackets appear in both the body of the document and in headers
and footers. To customize fields in Microsoft Word (which display a gray background when
selected) select File->Properties->Summary and fill in the appropriate fields within the Summary
and Custom tabs.
After clicking OK to close the dialog box, update all fields throughout the document selecting

on it and pressing F9.
These actions must be done separately for any fields contained with the documents Header and
Footer.
2. Modify boilerplate text as appropriate for the specific project.
3. To add any new sections to the document, ensure that the appropriate header and body text
styles are maintained. Styles used for the Section Headings are Heading 1, Heading 2 and
Heading 3. Style used for boilerplate text is Body Text.
4. To update the Table of Contents, right-click on it and select Update field and choose the option -

2.0 Instructional Analysis


2.1 Needs and Skills Analysis
[This subsection of the Training Plan describes the target audiences for courses to be developed. Target
audiences may include technical professionals, user professionals, data entry clerks, clerical staff
members, ADP and non-ADP managers, and executives. Described the tasks that must be taught to meet
objectives successfully and the skills that must be learned to accomplish those tasks. A matrix may be
used to provide this information. Also in this subsection, the training needs for each target audience are
discussed. If appropriate, this subsection should discuss needs and courses in terms of staff location
groupings, such headquarters and field offices.]

2.2 Development Approach


[This subsection of the Training Plan discusses the approach used to develop the course curriculum and
to ensure quality-training products. This description includes the methodology used to analyze training
requirements in terms of performance objectives and to develop course objectives that ensure
appropriate instruction for each target group. The topics or subjects on which the training must be
conducted should be listed or identified.]

2.3 Issues and Recommendations


[This subsection of the Training Plan includes any current and foreseeable issues surrounding training.
Recommendations for resolving each issue and constraints and limitations should also be listed. Review
and update the Risk Management Plan with any new risk information uncovered during the development
of this plan.]

3.0 Instructional Methods


3.1 Training Methodology
[This subsection of the Training Plan describes the training methods to be used in the proposed courses;
these methods should relate to the needs and skills identified in Section 2.3, Needs and Skills Analysis,
and should take into account such factors as course objectives, the target audience for a particular
course, media characteristics, training criteria, and costs. The materials for the chosen training approach,
such as course outlines, audiovisual aids, instructor and student guides, student workbooks,
examinations, and reference manuals should be listed or discussed in this subsection. Sample formats of
materials can be included in an appendix, if desired.]

3.2 Training Database


[This subsection of the Training Plan, if applicable, identifies and discusses the training database and
how it will be used during computer systems training. It discusses the simulated production data related
to various training scenarios and cases developed for instructional purposes. This subsection also
explains how the training database will be developed. If this subsection is not applicable to the system
involved, indicate "Not applicable."]

3.3 Testing and Evaluation


[This subsection of the Training Plan describes methods used to establish and maintain quality assurance
over the curriculum development process. This description should include methods used to test and
evaluate training effectiveness, evaluate student progress and performance, and apply feedback to
modify or enhance the course materials and structure.

One source of feedback could be a course- or module-specific course or instructor evaluation form. This
form should gather trainee reactions on the following topics: scope and relevance of course or module,
appropriateness of objectives, usefulness of assignments and materials, effectiveness of course training
materials, stronger and weaker features of the course, adequacy of the facilities, timing or length of the
course or module, effectiveness of the instructor(s), and participant suggestions and comments.]

5.0 Training Materials List


5.1 Purpose and Scope
The purpose of this document is to assist the project manager and project team in managing the training
materials produced by the project as part of the <Project Release Name>. Training materials can include:
seminars, presentations, workbooks, self-study tutorials, etc., associated with a software version release.
The Training Plan Template, located in the <OPDIV Document Repository>, provides the framework for
determining how the training materials will be identified, developed, and delivered. This should be a
living document that is updated frequently to reflect new or changing training material information.

Although both the Training Plan and Training Material templates can be used by projects of any size, they
are intended to be used mainly by the larger, more complex, and more critical projects.

6.0 Training Curriculum


[This section of the Training Plan provides descriptions of the components that make up each course. If a
large number of courses or modules are described, place these descriptions in an appendix. Subsections

time the course/module will take; the expected class size (minimum, maximum, optimal); the target
audience; course objectives; module content/syllabus; specific training resources required, such as
devices, aids, equipment, materials, and media to be used; and any special student prerequisites. The
course description could also include information on instructor-to-student ratio, total number of students
to be trained, estimated number of classes, location of classes, and testing methods.

Include an explanation to the following questions:

After the training is completed, what will happen to the training course materials, student
information and other materials?
